Automatically Archive Inactive Slack Channels
Tired of having a bunch of old slack channels piling up and clogging your channels list?
Well, this is the app for you!
Once a day, this app will find all of your inactive Slack and archive them,
based on the number of days of inactivity you desire.
This app is ready to go once you've finished activating it. You simply set an inactivity threshold,
connect your Slack account, and the app will handle the rest.
The threshold for when a channel is considered inactive is based on number of days
since the last message sent in the channel.
A list of archived channels for that day will be sent to the user you wish to notify.
Manually Running the Archive Command
If you would like to manually run the archiver, you can do so with
/cmd archive-channels or
/archive-channels for custom apps.

They should be added without the # and need to follow proper JSON structure (double quotes, no trailing comma after the last item).
Once those have been added you can deploy a dev version of the app.
Back on the manage dashboard you can ship a release:
